Spring is all about G R E E N S. With the bountiful spring season upon us, our bodies start craving lighter, plant-based meals. To help lighten up your meals, join us for this hands-on cooking class with Susan Chasen, Health and Wellness Coach. We’ll share the recipes with you ahead of time. Register early so you have time to shop for ingredients and cook along with Susan.

There’ll be two items on the menu, both gluten-free and vegetarian friendly:

Zoodles (zucchini noodles) with leafy greens and basil pesto
A kale salad using antioxidant-rich berries.
If zucchini and kale are not your favorite ingredients, no worries; Susan will be able to provide substitutions or alternates to fit your fondness.

Make extra because you (and your family) will be asking for a second helping. No oven required! A question and answer period will follow the cooking segment.
